Glass + Ass whipping = A very happy sub!

I am very pleased with this whip. It was our first whip, and we couldn't have made a better choice. My husband loves how easy it is to hold it and wield it. I love how stingy it can be and how red it makes my skin after a good session. My only major complaint is that it can't be displayed on our "wall of pain" because it doesn't have a wrist strap. We don't have the biggest apartment, but we still have room to bring out the Fashionistas whip for a good time!
Published:

Use

*First of all, I said in my Milestone Interview that for my next 100, I wanted to dive into the kinkier side of sex. I am no virgin to pain/pleasure play or rough sex, but we just never bought the tools to actually do it. So, as promised, I bought a whole bunch of kinky/BDSM items on Eden. This is the first of many reviews. Enjoy!*

The Fashionistas whip is another one of those multi-functional bedroom tools. It is made out of body safe materials, and its design is a heady mixture of dark and seductive. Since this is the first item I have bought from this company, I am proud to say that this whip is expertly crafted. I have tugged on the falls as hard as I dare, and they were not going anywhere. I have been whipped fairly hard, but the falls are not tearing or falling apart. The falls are not fraying or anything like that. I love how sturdy this whip is, and it was made to last a very long time. I think this is a perfect whip to begin playing with. It makes a wonderful bedroom tool for couples. The glass handle/dildo would be perfect for beginners because it is slim, and it does not have any harsh textures to it. The faux-leather falls can be used to whip anywhere on the body. It feels very good on the butt, thighs, breasts, genitals, and back. It tickles when applied to the feet, and that can be great fun too! The overall length isn't very long, but it is still too long for travel unless you have a storage case long enough to put it in. When whipping, the smacking sounds are pretty loud. It can be loud enough to hear through a closed door, so keep that in mind. It is also really hard to keep the screams and moans down to a minimum.
Total length: 22"
Handle length: 7"
Lengh of falls: 15"

Handle:
The handle is made out of tempered glass. Glass, as most of us know, is non-porous and overall safe for the body. It is super rigid which not only makes a good handle but a good dildo as well. You never have to worry about the toy shattering or breaking off inside of you. It didn't even break when we accidentally dropped it on the floor (oops). The handle will feel cold to the touch at first, but it will warm up very quickly once held in the palm of your hand. Glass can be used with any sort of lubricants. That being said, most people will not even need lube, especially if you have been getting whipped for a good while. My pussy is always drenched after a few good whacks. Besides, the handle becomes extremely slippery when it comes into contact with fluids (sweat, lube, bodily fluids). There is a pattern on the handle, and it is slightly raised. It reminds me of a lace or woven pattern. However, it doesn't really make the handle easier to hold onto. It sure looks pretty though. The handle does not have any seams or weird textures besides the pattern I just mentioned. The whip also doesn't feature a hanging strap. This kind of sucks because that is how we store all of our flogging toys. I can't just cram it in a drawer because then the falls will become crinkled and disformed. I want them to remain straight and perfect. There is a circular glass bead of sorts right above the handle that covers where the falls become connected to the handle. Without this, the whip would look strange. Somehow, this little thing ties the whole look together. The handle is very sleek, somewhat long, and thin. Even though this could be inserted, I feel like the Icicles whip would be more efficient for me as a whip/penetrating glass toy. The handle is long enough for me to grasp it comfortably and insert it. For this reason, I don't see any problems with inserting this anally. Just be careful not to go past the circular/oval-ish bead. My husband has pretty large hands, and he can palm/swing with the handle with no problems.



Falls:
The falls of the whip are made out of faux-leather. This material has a leathery type of scent upon arrival, but I love the scent of leather so it doesn't bother me. I can only smell this whenever the falls are right under my nose. Faux-leather is a very sturdy material. It is tear and water resistant. The falls shed very little. Every once in a while, I will run my hand through the falls and get a little black fuzzy. The falls have almost no stretch to them. The ends were not cut at an angle like some whips and floggers are. The ends of this whip were cut perfectly horizontal. They don't have a big problem getting tangled during storage or play. When swung in the air, the falls tend to stay together to come down in one big smack. The falls can deliver a hurtful smack or a gentle tap. When brought down with some power behind it, the sensation can feel quite stingy. When lightly tapping, it feels more thuddy than anything. This whip is simply irresitable!

Performance

Okay, so as most of you know by now my husband and I have not messed around with BDSM gear before. I wouldn't even begin to understand how to expertly wield a flogger, and I assumed that my husband would feel the same way. I figured this was going to be an experience where we both would teach each other. Before we got started, however, we stated our ground rules. We only had one, and that was no hitting in the face. Anywhere else is good to go. Here is what happened that night...
He went into the closet and removed the spreader bar bag from its place on the wall. He grabbed the longer bar, and he attached the four cuffs to it. He put it to the side and picked up the Romp anal plag. After making sure I was all lubed up, he began to insert the plug. My fingers found my clit, and I stroked myself. After the toy was perfectly inserted, he made me get on my back. Then he proceeded to hook me up to the spreader bar. For those of you who can't picture this I am on my back, and my legs are high in the air and about as spread as they get. My wrists are attached to the same bar, so I can pull my legs farther back if needed. It was very comfortable and restraining all at the same time. My husband stepped away to enjoy the perfect view of my now exposed pussy and ass (which had the plug sticking out of it). All I could see was his arrogant smile. He grapped the Fashionistas Whip and looked me in the eye. I could see the wicked gleam in those gorgeous blues. Now again, I assumed that he was going to be timid and shy the first couple of times. I could not be more wrong. It has been a long time since my husband surprised me. He didn't even take a practice swing. He brought the whip down hard on my thighs. My breath was instantly taken away from me. It felt so bad and so good. He smacked my thighs some more. He always changed where he hit and how hard he swung, so I never knew what the next swing was going to bring. After he got my thighs nice and red, I saw his eyes focus on my pussy (which was dripping by this point). I think my face drained of color or something because that was when he said, "This might hurt." I instantly felt my muscles tense up preparing for the harsh sting on my pussy. Instead, I only felt a soft and gentle thud. He can be so deceiving at times! He constantly acted like he was going to smack my pussy super hard at any moment, but it never came. I am starting to think that there is a sliver of a true sadist inside my husband. I think I woke the beast! I watch a lot of kinky porn, and I swear my husband handled the whip like a pro. By the end of the session, I had a few marks on my thighs. They were gone by the next morning. The harder you flog, the more marks you will get.
*Side note: We used many different floggers and crops that night, so this story continues. Simply wait for the next few reviews...*

Care and Maintenance

Whips are, for the most part, low maintenance. After a session, I use an Eden toy wipe to quickly wipe down the handle and falls. If you don't have any toy wipes, I would wipe the entire thing down with a slightly damp cloth. After it is clean, I dry the whip with a soft microfiber cloth.
Storage is where this gets a little tricky. It doesn't have a hanging strap, so it is a bit difficult to store. If you have a long drawer, the whip can be put into the drawer. Once you find a storage place, make sure that the falls are straight. If not, then the falls might become crinkled and misshapen. I store mine in the storage bag that came with my spreader bar set. This bag has a hanging strap, so this works super well for me. I make sure that the heavy handle is on the bottom end that way the handle doesn't slide down and crush the falls. The falls are perfectly contained and straight.

Packaging

This whip came in a very long plastic box. It was so long, that I couldn't get a decent picture of it. The front has a window that gives you a view of the complete whip. For this reason, I wouldn't call it a discreet presentation. I would still feel comfortable giving it as a gift to a friend, however, because the packaging is very tasteful. There are no pictures of nude people or anything like that on the box. The back gives some information about the Fashionistas BDSM line of toys, and they also include a picture of all of the toys as well (look below for a photo). The whip is snuggled inside a plastic tray, which prevents the toy from moving around and getting tangled during shipping or storage. If you have the room, I would keep the packaging to store the toy in as it doesn't have a strap to hang it. If you are limited on space, I would find a place long enough for the whip to lie flat or else the falls might become tangled or bent in weird positions.
